Hi

I have been absent from this forum for some considerable time following the success of my application to have my husband here and settled with me. At that time I was ever so greatful for the support and advice I received from this forum and was also to help one or two other people along the way.

Now we are about to apply for ILR. My husband's visa was issued around 26th October 2010 and he actually arrived in the UK on 15th January 2011. When is the earliest that we can apply for ILR?

The other question is about the "Knowledge of life" in the UK test. Though my husband comes from Jamaica (an English-speaking country), his written and oral English are very poor and I wondered if he could sit an English test instead, to bring him up to scratch so that he would have some chance to pass the KOL test later on. With all the other considerations trying to get a job etc., and try to settle here it's a lot to take in, in such a short space of time. I am born and bred here and I attempted 4 mock tests and failed each time so what chance does have a person who has been here a relatively short time have, but anyway.

I posted this topic previously, but had no response so I would appreciate it if someone could respond.asap

Thank you

J

He can apply Dec 17th. If he hasn't passed the test he can extend his current visa once he has a suitable language test.
